    "It won't take you long."

    The impunity/lack of accountability of the HSE.

    Turning a corner in the van and hearing the unique sound of the boxes of neatly stacked various sized screws tumbling over and sliding around in unison as you continue to drive, sobbing quietly.

  3. When a sparky - annoyed by his collapsed cable reel - then takes it out on his customers by leaving only 3" of flex coming out of backboxes.

    Though to be fair to the sparky, he's usually spent a good half hour by that point finding and cleaning all of his backboxes out of multi finish.

    Only because the chimp who drylined the wall couldn't understand the simple instruction of any cable with green and yellow tape on bring through the plaster board at the height that is written on the cable :D

    "We really really like you, we feel you were the most knowledgeable, reliable, punctual, professional contractor out of the twenty quotes we received, but we've decided to go with Aardvark builders instead I'm afraid, as they were £20 cheaper than you."

    Site 'Managers' under 25 years old. Then again, most get on my tots irrespective of age. The old school are gone.

    When you make a purchase totalling a couple if not several hundred pounds in screwfix, to be sent a £10 voucher the next day giving you only a few days to use it before it becomes void.
